Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds and peace upon His final Messenger Muhammad (SAW), his family, companions and all his followers. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and that Muhammad (SAW) is His final messenger, sent with the final word and as a mercy to mankind.

Allah says in the Quraan “… and We have sent down of the Quraan that which is a healing and a mercy to the believers…“. We know that we have two things that will guarantee us success and these are the Quraan and Sunnah. Although there are many methods of Ruqya, and it is a developing science, the basis of any treatment should only be from Quraan and Sunnah. This is what we strive for.

A Brief History

Like many, I too have had some experience in being affected by either Sihr, Jinn or Ayn. We end up looking for help and in many cases don’t care where it comes from. You are often sent from Amil to Amil, Maulana to Maulana, spending thousands of Rands hoping that someone has the ultimate solution – but lo and behind the solution is and always has been right in our own homes.

Our quest was not only to be “cured” but to find true knowledge of Ruqya. In December 2013, we joined the first group to learn Ruqya under the teachings of Shk Ben Halimah. We quickly became part of, and helped develop, the group to be known as Ruqya South Africa. In our years of treating patients, being involved in campaigns across South Africa, becoming Jinn Catchers and even training students in a Darul Uloom, we eventually found ourselves parting due to slight differences of opinions.

The idea is not for Ruqya groups to fight against each other but rather to look at the bigger picture and educate people to know that there is an alternative to Amils, Maulanas and Taweez.

This Ruqya website was started in 2013 by myself to uphold this very intention. It is an open website, with some simple self treatments based on various teachings from the famous author Waheed Abdussalam Baly (Sword Against Black Magic and Evil Magicians) and the famous ‘Islamic Healing’ book by Yusuf Al-Haj Ahmad, Shk Abd Al Aziz bin Abdullah bin Baaz, Ibn Taymiyyah and others. The methods derived from them are made into a simple self treatment format which allows anyone to understand and practice, before seeking professional help. For more severe cases we do recommend you seek the assistance of a Raaqi.

I hope and pray that this website serves as a platform in the bigger scheme of Ruqya to help people and point them in the right direction to an authentic cure which is from Quraan and Sunnah.

The Future

Ruqya in South Africa is a growing “buzz” with many claiming to be Raaqi’s. I believe that we have all performed Ruqya in some way or the other by reading Surahs like Ikhlaas, Falaq and Naas and Ayatul Kursi with the intention of being protected or healed in some way. The problem is that most people seem to believe that it does not work, and end up seeking a more powerful solution. The words of Allah will always work, but the real problem is our lack of Yaqeen (faith) in it. No-one will ever have anything that is more powerful than the words of Allah (Al Quraan). By this we can see that the best cure will always be the Quraan.

I appeal to you to read through this website, understand it and know that the cure is quite simple. Should you prefer to be treated by a Raaqi, we do have a list of Ruqaa whom you may contact and speak to. The website also allows for Ruqaa to be added who can use it as a platform to treat and teach people.


Once again, our intention is open and clear. We provide a solution that is inexpensive, simple and non-dependable. We hope that this Ruqya website can grow to be the most informative and authentic source of Ruqya information.

With sincere gratitude.
Assalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatu
